Posted on April 9, 2013 @ 09:07 am

The 2013 EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women, which is being sponsored by The Entertainment Industry Foundation, will be held on May 4th in New York City, with hosts Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde; and on May 11th in Los Angeles, with Entertainment Tonight's Brooke Anderson and Dancing with the Stars' Carrie Ann Inaba co-hosting.

To date, nearly one million people have participated in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women and the Run/Walks have distributed more than $68 million to support women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs.

The New York race will start in Times Square and finish in Central Park where there will be a health expo as well as a survivor ceremony. The Los Angeles race will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park

"Revlon has been involved with the EIF Revlon Run/Walk since its inception and every year, we are reminded of how important it is to keep up the fight against women's cancers until we find a cure," said Ronald Perelman, co-founder of the Run/Walk and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program.

Lilly Tartikoff, co-founder of the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program, commented, "It's hard to believe that it's already been 20 years!"

Tartikoff continued, "Women truly are our inspiration and the force behind our success. Their spirit and passion has made it possible to raise the much-needed funds that have helped to deliver a non-toxic treatment for breast cancer called Herceptin. In addition, there is another hopeful non-toxic treatment on the way. We are grateful to everyone for making this possible."
